Wood Kitchen Countertops with Cooktop Cutouts often contain drop in stove inserts gas, electric or induction. They can be safely used following the cooktop manufacturer’s instructions. Slide in ranges should be installed so the stove surface is level with the countertop. This can be accomplished by adjusting the feet of the slide in stove. Grothouse has the design capability to craft any wood countertop to safely fit a cooktop or stove.
Wood Kitchen Countertops with Cooktop Cutouts | Design Options
Countertops with Cooktop Cutouts can be crafted out of any three construction styles available at Grothouse. The three construction styles available are End Grain, Edge Grain, and Flat Grain. The construction style should be chosen for the countertops intended use. Click here to find out more information about countertop construction styles.
Cooktop Cutouts can be used with countertops finished with Grothouse Original Oil™ or Durata® Waterproof Permanent Finish. Grothouse Original Oil™ should be chosen if you plan on chopping directly on the wood countertop and do not mind re-oiling the top on a monthly basis. Durata® Waterproof Permanent Finish should be chosen if you do not plan on chopping directly on the countertop and want a maintenance-free finish that is permanent.
Wood Kitchen Countertops with Cooktop Cutouts can also include any of our other design options.
